Rum Doings Episode 270: Owned By The Lady At Waitrose

In our 270rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: going forward, can’t we just agree to disagree?

Ho ho ho dear. It’s our CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! Is it our Hanukkah special? Is Hanukkah special?

It does sound like we’re about to talk about politics again, but don’t worry, we divert. Instead we ponder why no one visits Prince Philly in hospital, the worstest of all Christmas songs, and complain about Poundland’s tills.

We then talk about forgiveness, which is uncharacteristically apposite for the season, then try to come up with some new Christmas traditions.

Rum Doings Episode 269: Nasal Douche

In our 269nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: should we amend the Great British constitution so that Andrew Neil be Queen during general election?

John has a CHRONIC SINUS CONDITION, and that’s obviously the big news of the week. So we talk nasal DOUCHING. He’s also just launched a new website about undiscovered indie games, but pah.

We also talk the awfulness of the election choices, as evidenced by the inevitable success of Mogg, about Judith’s appendectomy, steamed breakfasts, and the disastrous US healthcare system.

Rum Doings Episode 268: Quite Oddly Lax

In our 268rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: should we be worried about TikTok?

Nick has a new kitten! It’s correct name is Maisy. This sadly doesn’t distract us from talking about the hopeless pit that is the UK general election. And then, with a great deal of sense and decorum, we discuss the ethnic demographics of the UK for the longest time.

Then, stepping into a subject about we’re even less expert, we talk evolution.

Rum Doings Episode 267: Munchy Vagina

In our 267nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: With all the worrying news, shouldn’t there now be a vaping tsar?

There’s a little bit of politics. We begin with all the latest HILARIOUS ANTICS of Brexit, and then quite figuratively leap across the Atlantic at the depressing farce of the Democratic race. With special focus on the brain collapse of Joe Biden.

We learn the advice of children, and then get to the real issue of the day: Nick’s fancy new toilet.

Rum Doings Episode 266: Operating Within Chronological Time

In our 266nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: Why don’t we kick the CAN’T down the road?!

Prepare yourself: it’s going to be Brexitty. Obviously we discuss at some length the excitement of the last day or so, plus our predictions for what’s going to happen next. And we try to understand the motivations for people who voted Leave, but aren’t racists or stupid.

We ponder how Rees-Mogg has been so rhetorically thick, and even more concerningly, how Farage is becoming so rhetorically smart. Then Nick is MASSIVELY racist against the Japanese, while John saves his racism for the Jews. Finally we celebrate how terrible BBC News has become, and, moving forward, condemn anyone who ever says that.

In our 265rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: Why don’t we just… prorogue traffic wardens?!?!!

So yes, we obviously discuss the Brexitty madness, and then the legacy of John Bercow. This then incomprehensibly links on to the irritations of “smart” speakers, Toby’s first day at school, and that dreadful modern music you kids listen to.

We argue about giving trophies to children, argue even more about whether John likes tennis, and argue a bit in the middle about whether to have fights.

In our 264nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: If we can put a man on the moon, why can’t we put a man on the moon?

This week we talk instead about the absolute clustermuck that is this week in politics, and how no rules apply anywhere. We ask why phones don’t dut-duhdah-dut any more, the power of adverts, and we argue for the extinction of the human race.

Plus there’s the most important topic of all: what’s going on with toilet buttons?

Top safe skin lightening ingredients that can be used in skin lightening process and lightening creams

Beauty is being comfortable and confident in one’s own skin. No matter what shape or size a girl is she should feel confident in her own skin. The confidence spreads only when the skin shines. Therefore, skin care is much more important than make up. Make up becomes superfluous when one begins to feel the glamour in their own skin. When this comfort is achieved no matter what she wears, her confidence becomes her best accessory!

However, in order to achieve this, it is essential to stay radiant, free from hyper pigmentation, black spots, acnes, etc. However, they are inevitable. To evade these problems, one should never ever see the sun! This is because the above problems arise when the skin increases its melanin production due to over exposure to the sun.

The best solution in these cases is skin lightening. However, not all the skin lightening treatments are safe. There are certain treatments that use harmful ingredients like hydroquinone. It causes permanent damages to the skin pigment cells called the melanocytes. They decolorize these pigments permanently. To avoid such problems, one should carefully choose the skin lightening cream like meladerm. Before buying such creams look for their ingredients. Make sure the cream is made of safe ingredients.

Here are the top safest ingredients that can be used in skin lightening treatment

Kojic acid

It is a by product of malted rice. This lightens and brightens the darkened skin spots. It is all – natural product. It works on the dark spot by inhibiting the conversion of tyrosinase to melanin. It also inhibits the intake of oxygen by the cells in the affected area. This helps to prevent enzymatic browning.

Alpha Arbutin

It is a bio – synthetic extract. It is prepared from the leaves of bearberry trees. It is one of the best recommendations when it comes to naturally exfoliating the skin. Therefore, the process of removing the affected cells is hastened and the new skin formation is activated. It shows better and faster results than the kojic acid. It is also a good alternative to the fairness chemicals out there.

Bearberry extract

It is extracted from the Uva Ursi plant. It is popularly known as beta – arbutin and is commonly found in many fairness creams. It is a sibling of hydroquinone and hence should be used in right amounts. Consult a dermatologist before using this extract. It inhibits the action of tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin. Therefore, it is considered as one of the good solutions for skin discoloration.

Lactic acid

Lactic acid is considered as the best skin treatment when it is paired with certain plant extracts. One can use licorice root extract or mulberry extract to create the perfect formula with lactic acid. The mixture can then be used as skin cleansers and skin lighteners.

Licorice root

It is perfect for those with sensitive skin. This is because it calms down redness, itching and puffiness. It contains 2 compounds namely glabradin and liquirtin. They act as tyrosinase inhibitors.

Mulberry extract

Mulberry plant extract is gaining its popularity in skin lightening processes. It is mainly because it is gentle and non – irritating. Most of the ingredients though natural cause minimal irritation. It is actually the itching sensation caused due to the healing of the affected cells. Though it is good, some find it annoying. Mulberry extracts are the best solution to such people.

Mulberry extract lightens and brightens the skin. This is because it is rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C increases the collagen synthesis in the skin. Collagen is a structural protein that is essential for firm and youthful skin.

Azelaic acid

It is found in grains. They also help treating many skin conditions apart from lightening the skin. It was originally used to treat acne. This is because it reduces the production of keratin that promotes the growth of acne bacteria. It also reduces inflammation.

What does azelaic acid do?

On the other hand, it has very little or no effect on pigmented skin like freckles.


It is the best ingredient when it comes to healing jagged pigmentation and age spots. It increases ceramide and fatty acid in the affected area. This helps to keep the skin hydrated which is very much essential to lighten the skin. In long term, the skin becomes firmer and wrinkle free

Citrus Extracts

They are generally made from citrus fruits. They are rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps to remove free radicals from the body. These radicals are responsible for aging process. Therefore, they can be used to remove pigmentation and other aging related issues associated with the skin. Lemon juice is a common citrus extract that removes the dark spots by exfoliating the skin. These are present in the skin lightening creams like meladerm as well.

The only drawback is that when used on affected spots, it causes mild burning. This is because the skin is wounded and damaged by the sun. The burning depends on how long the person was exposed to the sun and how much lemon juice or citrus extract the user used. The irritation and burning caused by the extract are due to inflammation.

Glycolic acid

It is the most active skin care ingredient. It not only helps to lighten the skin but also acts as a natural skin exfoliant and moisturizer. It also helps to minimize the fine lines and wrinkles.

If the thyroid is too active, it makes more amount of T3 and T4 hormones. It is like over-heating the house. It is called hyperthyroidism. If the gland is under active producing very little hormones, the condition is called hypothyroidism.

What are the causes of hyperthyroidism in women?

Grave’s disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. Visit symbol of hope blog to learn about grave disease, its symptoms, treatment and medication. It produces anti bodies that stimulate too much secretion of hormones. Other causes are as follows:

  1. Excess amount of iodine

Doctors first look for physical symptoms like protruding eyes, rapid pulse rate, high blood pressure, enlargement near the throat (which is due to enlargement of thyroid gland).

The doctors can also make other tests as follows:

  1. Cholesterol test – Low cholesterol is a sign of thyroid problems. This is because low cholesterol levels happen only when there is a sign of elevated metabolic rate. It says that body is burning cholesterol rapidly due to increased level of T3 and T4 hormones in the blood stream
  2. T4, T3, free T4 – These are the tests to measure the level of thyroid hormones in the blood stream

Why are women more prone to thyroid than men?

This is because thyroid problems are linked to autoimmunity. Autoimmunity of women is more as compared to men. Autoimmune diseases are those where body produces antibodies to target its own secretions. In this case, the thyroid gland creates anti bodies to destroy its own secretion. Scientists relate this to psychological strength as well.

8 out of 10 thyroid affected women lagged inner strength. They feel insecure.

How is it related to psychological behavior?

The function of the thyroid gland is governed by a feedback mechanism. The feedback is obtained from the brain.

In simple words, the control of thyroid gland is with the brain. Any disorders like sleepless night, stressful situations, depressions can affect the level of control of thyroid gland.

Technical explanation

When the T3 or T4 levels are low, the brain (hypothalamus in the brain) produces TRH (a hormone – Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone). This causes pituitary gland to release TSH that stimulates thyroid gland to release T3 and T4.

We obviously discuss the changes that have occurred over the last ten years, both to us and the world, which naturally leads us to our usual complaining about Jeremy Corbyn, Donald Trump, and Brexit. For some reason Nick insists on John’s blithering about changes in games, we do our best to upset most new parents, and Judith outdoes John on appearing on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

Tips To Stay Healthy Even While On A Holiday

One of the things you sacrifice when on a holiday is a good and healthy diet. Being far from home and routine is a temptation no one can resist, eating too much, throwing proper caution away and doing more than what he/she is supposed to.

A long car trip or flight may mean sitting too long on your seat, but that should not let you give in to the temptation. There are many of your unhealthy cravings that can be satisfied by refreshing, cool water. Also, staying hydrated can help you eat lesser and make you feel energized and full.

There are a lot of fast food restaurants and restaurants serving huge food portions, you can meet along the road while on a holiday. Sure, maximizing your experience by trying out different food is a good idea, but you need to know that this experience must come with limitations.

Sticking with your regular eating habits and routines even while on a vacation is a good idea. If you have not eaten for so long while on the road, you might end up stopping over to any restaurant you pass by. And this is when the temptation starts to kick in, and for sure, you cannot resist it even how unhealthy the food they serve, because you are already hungry.

Stick with the rule of the thumb, and that is eating every two to three hours. But, it should not be full meal all the time, nuts or yogurt of small portions should be good enough.

As your first step, make sure you are prepared, so spoiling in a healthy diet even while you are on the go is possible.

Below are great travel food plans to make your trip nutritious and healthy.

While on the road

Everyone is excited to reach their destination, but that would not stop their appetite to look for food. A supply of junk food is indeed a bad idea, packing easy meals and few snacks are the best. Coolers and airtight containers can keep food fresh, making it enjoyable to munch while inside the car. Some of the foods you can eat while in the car are:


On the plane

Mostly, airlines do not serve their passengers with healthy food hence you have to plan ahead of time. Call the airline and ask if they offer special meals, vegetarian and kosher are a few of the most liked by nutrition eaters.

Instead of buying junk food and expensive food on board, you can definitely save money and time by being ready. A liter of pure water and protein sources food can help you avoid fatigue and dehydration, and overeating and excessive hunger later.

You can prepare same food as noted above on car trips.

While on the hotel

Before you even book a stay in a hotel, make sure that there are supermarkets near the hotel. Actually, there are available supermarkets to any places you go, but there is definitely no harm checking out on Google.

It is also recommended that you request for a microwave and refrigerator in your hotel room to ensure everything you purchase stays good for a long time. keep your refrigerator full of healthy food so when you get hungry at night, you do not need to go out and buy unhealthy food.

Foods to keep in your hotel room refrigerator are:

Along the shore

If your vacation includes long drive, long hike and a day enjoying the beach, it is highly recommended that you load your diet with lean protein. Eating balanced diet is a must, but not being able to consume enough protein can make you feel worn out and too tired before night time.

Enjoy dose of lean and high quality protein like tofu and eggs, and some veggies too. Some of the foods to enjoy are:


Depending on your accommodation, you may or may not have a kitchen to use. A lot of Airbnbs and vacation rentals can offer you kitchen amenities like the ones you have at home. They are most of the time the cheaper choice than a hotel. This means that you can buy and prepare your food, hence giving you the chance to save money and let you eat healthier options.

There are a lot of great food you can cook on your own, and buying them is not a problem if you were able to get an accommodation near a supermarket. If you do not have prepared a menu as of yet, below are good food you can enjoy dining while on a holiday:

Do not use vacation as an excuse to live an unhealthy life. It may only be for a few days, but getting rid of your healthy routine even just for a while can give you a hard time getting back on track.

There are many good holiday tips you can consider. Sites, like TJ, provide their visitors with not only travel guides but ideas on how to make the most out of their holiday. Visiting such sites can help you a lot getting a holiday worth spending.

Best kratom for pain – take care and you can do better pain management

Borneo is one of the kratom strains with a pain relieving effect. In particular, it’s very amazing in alleviating joint and bones pain. All these are achieved at a small to moderate dosage. It ranks among the best kratom pain reliever such as Maeng Da and Indo kratom. Want to know more? Read this article and you will be able to know some of its effects, how to use and where to buy. So if you want to know more then you look for more info on natural opiate alternatives. There are many people who are making use of this product and once that happens things will be much easier. Sometimes pain can cause lots of anxiety and once that happens things will be much easier and you will not have a problem. There are many products in the market, but selecting the right one is never easy. Since there is so much of choice people may get confused and you should make sure that you select the best after doing the right research and this can help you a great deal.


The following are some of the effects of taking Borneo kratom.

Pain relief

Borneo is a good pain reliever. Comparing it with some of the best kratom strains in the market reveals it performs better than most strains. However, it’s still inferior to strains such as Bali, Maeng Da, and Indo kratom. It’s not that extremely effective as a pain reliever. However, it still works well. This is something important and you should know how to do the pain management well and once that happens things will be much easier for you and you will not have a problem.


A common substance in most kratom strains is alkaloids. However, it’s always in varying quantities. A high alkaloid level increases the stimulating effect. The level of alkaloids in Borneo strains is very low. As a result, it functions very well as anxiety relief. Most users will prefer it to reduce anxiety because of its less stimulating effect. Keep in mind that before you select a product that you have more info on natural opiate alternatives. This is something very important and you need to take care of this. Many people are very confused and do not know what is the right product and once you are sure of the right products then things will be very simple for you.


Insomnia is a condition where a person lacks sleep. You will now be asking what substance does it have that will induce sleep naturally? The truth of the matter is that it contains no substance to induce sleep. Users of Borneo kratom will experience an increase in sleep due to the high relaxing level of the strain. Most Borneo kratom strains have this sleep-inducing effect. It is very important that if you are suffering from this then you take good care of your health. This is something very important for one and all.

Borneo kratom strains

There are three common strains. Which include red vein, green vein, and white vein Borneo kratom. As can be noted the difference is because of vein color. Doesn’t it astonish how color can have an effect on the effects of the strains?

Red Vein Borneo kratom

A very common strain with effects such as a pain reliever and a sleep inducer. Red vein Borneo has less sedating effects. The effects last for as long as four hours. Be careful while buying this kratom. Few sellers sell the best quality of this strain. I would highly recommend it for new kratom users.

White Vein Borneo

The least popular among the three strains this is the best for relaxation and anxiety. Also a stimulant and an analgesic. It is very important that you get good sleep or you could have health issues in long term.

Green Vein Borneo

The best for pain relieving and antianxiety. You will be amazed by its lack of side effects to the user. Another advantage is its long-lasting effect as a pain reliever and still less sedative. Best for experienced and new users. Mke sure that you have more info on natural opiate alternatives.

Where to buy

Generally, all kratom strains are sold online. Serious Vendors who sell kratom will have many kratom strains. Examples of the best kratom vendors are the super natural botanicals. A vendor who sells products both locally and internationally.


There is no specific dosage for all kratom strains. As it will depend on factors such as age, tolerance, gender weight, mental and physical health, diet and the quality of the strain. A new user should start with a small amount. 1-3 grams is acceptable for a starter. Nevertheless, depending on your tolerance you could start with 4-5 grams. To be on the safe side start with 1-3 grams.

Capsule or powder

That is the decision you have to make. However, I would recommend capsules. If you are using powder, you have to find ways to measure the weight. Kratom is taken using grams. Again, it’s easier to take a capsule. Only a glass of water is what you need. The powder will require to be mixed with a liquid preferably warm.

By know, you know every detail about Borneo kratom. The best Borneo kratom for pain relieving is the Green Vein.

Psychic readings: What are they and for what are they done?

The psychic reading starts from the psychic capacity that some people have, called clairvoyants. These are able to see, feel or understand beyond what is perceived naturally, from the increase of their consciousness and extrasensory ability. Psychics, generally, are people with highly developed senses.

The psychic reading is an activity that is based mainly on the interpretation of the aura, or more precisely, of the energy fields developed around a person. From them, someone capable of making this kind of reading can detect the state of a few aspects in a life.

These types of readings have become very popular among people from all over the world, who want – first of all – to know what life holds in certain specific aspects in order to make certain decisions or take some steps.

  1. Love and relationship readings

Undoubtedly, one of the most popular and requested options. One of the main reasons why people end up requesting a reading of their aura is to know how their relationships are going, and to be able to make decisions about them.

Some people just ask if (he or she) is the right person, if they really could have a future with him or her, if things are predisposed to work for a long time, etc. Others, on the other hand, do it to clarify other types of internal or external conflicts, for example, with questions regarding possible infidelities or doubts when choosing a person.

Money has always been one of our biggest concerns and therefore, this type of questioning is always present when some predictions are requested.

  1. Lost loved ones or lost items

Feeling uncertain about some lost loved ones can be one of the most painful stages in life. Many times we question whether that person felt well, satisfied or at peace with us. Other times we need to know what his or her desire was in relation to a certain situation.

Through this type of services it is possible to make some contact with these people and obtain the requested answers from them. Similarly, reading can be very useful to find lost items that have disappeared.

  1. Tarot reading and zodiac

Fans of cards and stars can rest easy. Among the types of psychic readings available are traditional ones, referred to the predictions according to our zodiac sign and tarot.

  1. Dream analysis

Dreams and their meanings are one of the greatest mysteries around human life. They are usually a reflection of some internal desires or fears. They are the way in which the psyche materializes certain sensations.

Consequently, dreams could give us information about ourselves and what we need, although many times we are not able to perceive it. Also, some dreams work more like a type of prediction, and in their content may be important messages that must be deciphered to achieve a greater state of well-being in life.

  1. Career advice

Yes, there are many reasons why today you could be requesting a reading from one of the best and cheapest psychics on the web.

If you still do not identify with a career, you feel doubts or do not know which the most suitable option for you is, then you can request a reading. The specialist will not necessarily indicate an option, but will provide you with relevant information about yourself so that you can make a wise choice.

Although it seems incredible, this is one of the main reasons why psychic readings are requested. Finding yourself is never a simple task, and therefore, it never hurts to have some kind of guidance in the middle of this process.

Still not sure?

It does not matter what kind of situation you are going through. Many times the output is much closer than we think. Clarifying the mind and seeing things from an objective perspective can be all you need to make decisions and take a firm step.

A psychic reading is not going to be, or should not be, the factor by which you orbit your decisions. However, in times of extreme doubt and confusion this can be very helpful. Reading allows you to channel the soul, increase levels of consciousness and obtain the necessary keys to continue with your personal evolution.

The questions can be of all kinds: personal, work, referring to our health, our studies, our partner and much more. If it’s the first time, do not be afraid. Try to find cheapest psychics that can give you the answers you need.

Appropriate Sanitation Management by preventing clogging

Sanitation, in general, means human waste treatment so as to maintain a healthy environment. Improper sanitation management can lead to a lot of diseases like cholera and Encephalitis. Proper sanitation is required for bacteria and viruses-free healthy environment. Many portable services are available to help proper sanitation and provide restrooms at reasonable prices. The concept of portable toilet is very useful as it is not possible to find the toilet everywhere and dirty toilets can lead to many health issues. Professionals like myhamiltonplumber are required for these jobs due to many reasons as mentioned below:

Following are the ways how you can maintain proper sanitation:

Daily habits to be improved

Along with health issues, you can get a lot of water spilled on your floor due to clogging. These cloggings are because of unattended daily habits of homeowners. Professional Plumbing services like myhamiltonplumber recommend changing a few of the daily habits. Below mentioned are few habits to keep the drain unclogged for a longer time:

Food can be handled by your garbage disposals not drains. If there is no disposal in your drain, you should not forcefully pass all the food waste through your drain. You should dump food scraps in the garbage so as to prevent clogs due to food in your kitchen sinks.

We all know that grease is the heart of our kitchens. It seems very convenient for us to pour down old cooking oil and used food grease through the drain but that is not the right choice. It can cause severe clogs and can accumulate more with time. Experts from myhamiltonplumber advice to collect the whole grease in some cold container and then dispose of in the trash, not in the drain.

If drain stoppers in the bathrooms are not cleaned on regular intervals then it can lead to a serious buildup of hair which can further clog the drain which can be a difficult task to clean once it gets stuck.

Toilets should not be used as trash. It is an obvious habit to flush toilet paper which is completely fine but flushing sanitary napkins or other trash can get stuck in drain leading to a bad clogging. Of all the options available for cleaning, dealing with a clogged toilet can be the most unpleasant experience.

Doing all DIYs for cleaning your drain can be time wasting and also lead to hazardous problems resulting in unhappy experiences. DIYs are always temporary solutions. So it is wise to call professional sanitation services for drain cleaning and maintenance and septic services like tank cleaning, tank maintenance and emergency consultation. You should also keep in mind to hire those professional sanitation services only who have the license of cleaning and also they should have experts for service along with professional tools. These service providers should also be available proactively for regular analysis of the drainage system.

Outdoor toilets if not clean can lead to health problems and bad experience. So, it is better to choose outdoor events which have restroom units, restroom trailers, handicap restrooms and portable sink.

If all the above daily habits are adopted by the whole family, then all problems resulting from clogging can be avoided. Sanitation and health can be maintained properly in the house.

Plumbing Issues Remedies

Rain always seems pleasant for our plants and grass until or unless it turns into flood or high-speed winds. Unpleasant experiences of rain are there if a proper drain system for rainwater is not maintained. To avoid the over-accumulation of rainwater, below mentioned are few plumbing issues to be looked upon and remedies for them:

Flooding issues are common these days due to excessive rain. Flooding can lead to the culmination of water in the basement area of your home. These pumps are specially constructed in such a way that they pump the water out of your home to the outside area. In today’s time, many people are choosing to set up sump pump at their homes to drain excess rainwater.

You should look if water is shooting, running on the wrong place or dripping on turning on your hoses and sprinklers. You should also check for areas around taps and hoses. The basement should not be ignored. Due to cold weather outside, sometimes pipes outside your home can get damaged. Even the sprinkler heads might be broken leading to leakage.

Heavy rain does not only stimulate crop growth but it can stimulate root growth also. The heavy and thick roots knots, mud and leaves can clog the drains, gutters and also downspouts. So it should be mandatory to get the main sewer line cleaned regularly in case of heavy rainfall.

Corpse in the Bushes

“Hello, ambulances!” said a friendly voice. “It’s Common town Police here; we’ve got one for your attendance.”

“Jolly good,” I said. It’s always nice to talk to other services, like the police, fire brigade, buses and tube. They’re always so much friendlier than the general public. “Where are we off to?”

“West Common Road, near the church. We’ve just had a report from a man walking his dog who’s seen a man lying in the bushes — deceased, he thinks. He’s too scared to approach. We’re on way… are you?”

“WEST COMMON ROAD, SE29″ I typed. “MALE LYING IN BUSHES, POSSIBLY DECEASED.” By the time I’d flicked through the triage questions, an ambulance and a FRU were on way, and I told the police so.

The FRU in question just happened to belong to one Mr Steve Gibbs. Spotting this, I was tempted to write “MORNING STEVE!!!” in the special instructions, but I don’t think it would have gone down too well with my boss. Instead, I made a small but significant alteration to the diagnosis:
